Excerpt from The Rockstar Ramblings:
This week a look at video’s by Reverence, Nasty Habit, Johnny Roadkill, Europe, Diehard Dolls, and a special bonus from Steel Panther. Let’s get started!
The Detroit power metal band Reverence has released a second official music video for their song "Bleed For Me." The song comes from their debut CD 'When Darkness Calls' which was recently released.
The first verse uses “master” and “slave” so, you know, I’m hooked. It’s nice to see the “guitar players lean in to sing along with the chorus” move is alive and doing well.

It appears there is a place called Harris Welding Supplies that sells this patch. In 1-2 weeks you too can look like a bad ass…
Hot on the heels of the February release of their self-titled debut, New York's band, Nasty Habit, have unveiled the music video for the single "Hip Shakin' Fox.”

Check out the guy at 1:19, isn’t that the same hat worn by Dwayne Wayne in ‘A Different World?’ (Too obscure? How about Wesley Snipes character in ‘White Men Can’t Jump?’) BTW, how blessed are we that we were given a Dwayne Wayne AND a Dwayne Wade during our lives? The pop culture Gods really are looking over us.
Regarding the OVER-THE-TOP guitar solos, on a scale of one to ten I’m going to have to score this a twenty-three…
